    What do you wear when you open your garage door remotely or talk on a cell phone? Or start a lawn-mower or your car?

    There is enough RFI around you that it shouldn't be any additional worry.

    I can recommend the Flyzone Tidewater with great enthusiasm. I did "upgrade" to a DuBro 32mm spinner with integral collet after talking to a few other Tidewater pilots.

    Jester S-1 beat me to it. Claiming an aircraft cares or not is anthropomorphism regarding a non-living object. It reacts. We react back to try and compensate. The better pilots are less reactive...

    And swept back allows you to build the support ahead of the wing in a fuselage strong spot.

    Made of the same stuff. ;)
